Betty Lou and Family
I’m so sorry to hear about your Husband and Daddy’s passing. It has been a very long time since I’ve seen you but I always remember y’all at the store. Mama and Daddy (Claude & Louise Kilgore) would bring us by to get a lollipop and we always looked forward to coming to the store and seeing you all as well.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

When I was 12 years old I started working at Uncle Wills store after school and on week ends. He was more like a father to me. That is where I got my spending money, and a lot of fatherly advice. He was my Mama's baby brother. He loved growing things and sharing his bounty with everyone. Daisy Church
